Candidates for Full Mouth Reconstruction

What exactly is a full mouth reconstruction (FMR) and who should have one?

It’s important to understand the difference between an FMR and any other smile makeover because this could affect your own smile goals. A smile makeover will change the way you view your smile. An FMR will change the way you view your entire life!

FMR – Who Needs It?

Also called full mouth restoration, an FMR process embraces a series of procedures to correct:

  • TMJ problems
  • Severely damaged teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Jaw/bone irregularities from trauma
  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Rampant gum disease
  • A lot of broken and aged dental restorations

These problems aren’t just aesthetic concerns; they can interfere with normal processes like eating and speaking. The goal of an FMR is to combine and coordinate any treatment necessary for helping get your smile back to where it used to be.

Virtually anyone with such problems is a candidate for FMR!

The Expected Outcomes

Full mouth reconstructions are meant to give you a new lease on life. With a fully restored smile, you’ll be able to talk and eat as you haven’t done in a long time. Your smile will probably even take a few years off of you, that’s how good you’ll look and feel!

Every patient who has an FMR has different needs and so all the results will differ. But one thing is for certain: a full mouth reconstruction changes the life of each person who has one!

Whether caused by disease, trauma, or years of wear, your smile is likely a prime candidate for an FMR. Talk with your dentist about how to begin the journey of rebuilding all the elements of your smile.
